Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate, vice-president of CGI Federal, the Healthcare.gov contractor

Michelle-O’s Princeton classmate, Toni Townes-Whitley, is senior vice president at CGI Federal, the no-bid contractor that built the $678 million Healthcare.gov according to The Daily Caller. This is my answer to those, myself included, who wondered why in the he!! would our .government give a no-bid contract of that size to a non-American contractor when so many Americans are out of work.

And by the way, what’s up with the no-bid contracts these days?

Sen. Max Baucus retracting ‘Obamacare is a train wreck’??

On the Senate floor about a half hour ago, Sen. Max Baucus has basically retracted his ‘Obamacare is a train wreck‘ statement he previously made by saying he will vote to FUND ACA (Obamacare). Then, he’s going to retire because he’s FED UP with the Obamacare?  I think it’s more like the N.ot S.o A.stute has reared its ugly head.  One only has to look at Sen. Baucus’  face on C-SPAN today to see he’s under a lot of stress.

Also, funding Obamacare with 51 votes is a mistake and the coward’s way of getting what they want.

Is the objective of this bill to level our country down to a third world country?

Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) vs. Common Sense

Listen to Sen. Bill Nelson peppering his remarks today with the words “common sense” regarding the gun control bill that will be voted on tomorrow.  C-SPAN covering the floor speeches concerning the up-coming gun control vote.  Nelson prefaced his remarks with an obligatory “I love guns!” story relating his own pro-gun activities like duck hunting.  Yawn.  Then he went on (and on and on) about “common sense” – regarding background checks and restricting magazines to no more than 10 bullets. No more high-capacity magazines. Saying it’s “common sense” to ban Assault Weapons that the Military uses showing his ignorance on “assault weapons” which has been refuted by  weapons experts for the last…..millennium.  Yawn.  “Common sense” this and “common sense” that.  Enough already.  HOW ABOUT the COMMON SENSE in upholding the gun laws already on the books?!  HOW ABOUT the COMMON SENSE in differentiating between GUN CONTROL vs. CRIME PREVENTION.

CRIME PREVENTION only WORKS if you enforce EXISTING GUN LAWS.  Let’s get off the run-away meme GUN CONTROL and replace it with Common Sense, wait for it, CRIME PREVENTION tactics.  Better yet —

SELF-CONTROL not gun control.

What a novel thought.

Stalin would be proud of the leftists employment of semantic engineering to advance their cause.  Saul Alinsky is doing cartwheels over his little-fisted napoleons reframing the real issue – our law enforcement refusing to engage in CRIME PREVENTION.

The ‘Castro Hour’ is about to begin! Grab a chair in the village square..and BE there!

I call it the ‘Castro Hour’ in dis(honor) of Fidel hisself, for all his speeches, sermons and harangues held for hours and days at a time, in the open, village square, perpetually, standing-room only*.  Why?  Because I couldn’t find a TV station that wasn’t showing the ‘Castro Hour’, that’s why!  And I thought the networks had come to their prez-O fatigue moment last year, not feeling compelled to carry every one of his appearances..several times..every day. There for awhile.  Better get those seats, folks, the name-calling begins now.  This is the time when everyone attending is announced so it will be known for eons this-or-that senator, this-or-that representative, this-or-that VIP, not-so-important attendees, SCOTUS, and not a mouse in sight, attended the occasion.  There was a time when I watched the State of the Union Address, filled with pride and hope – not  high on Hopium.  So without further ado…..SEND IN THE CLOWNS!!!.

UPDATE 1:  Grown-ups screeching?
UPDATE 2:  I didn’t know “clapping” came in cans like laughter.
UPDATE 3:  No one’s hands or arms have fallen off yet.
UPDATE 4:  Wow.  CONTRIVANCE EXTRAORDINAIRE!
UPDATE  5:  Phoney-baloney pomp & circumstance fit for a king.
UPDATE  6:  Well. That introduction was o.b.s.c.e.n.e.

Yoo-hoo! Uncle Sam, your contrivance slip is showing and you’re blowing smoke

bamamoderndavycrockett

OK, for starters, skeeters might say this is a novice stance to which I reckon I’d agree.  However, I’m surprised the photographer didn’t show smoke coming from his ears as well, the “smoke” looks like it’s been “photo-shopped”. *tricksy titters*  The barrel needs cleaning…   and backfires come from the rear of a car.  Lastly, not much of a lift there. Waz the prez shooting paper dolls off a picket fence?  Hee Haw!

News Stew 01.18.13

  • There’s something creepy about a president, unveiling gun proposal plans, needing to surround himself with children.  It reminds me of other creepy imaginings like entertainers with arrested development preferring the company of children so they can feel all-mature and powerful-like.  Taking a serious issue and reducing it down to like, say, Mr. Rogers using his index finger to slowly push a tiny truck across a desk….parking it next to the big pink eraser.

  • It’s a joke to learn how FAST & FURIOUS Attorney General Eric Holder and the DOJ are asking a federal court to delay indefinitely a case brought against them by watchdog Judicial Watch.  Didn’t Prez-O just sign an executive order stating “the DOJ will release a report analyzing information on lost and stolen guns and make it widely available to law enforcement”.  Oops to bad timing.  It’s nice to note this irony pointed out by PuC recently hasn’t been lost on other astute observers.
  • Cyclist Lance Armstrong strong-arms his pseudo-conscience in his interview with Oprah Winfrey on his doping, actually says it was “part of the job” . Seriously.  I just can’t understand why Armstrong wasn’t sitting on the floor with the rest of the children during Prez-O’s creepy gun proposal photo-op.  Deceitful Armstrong, just another flawed character.  Another narcissistic headline-grabber.
  • Now I’m reading about the kid’s video at Prez-O’s gun proposal plans photo-op who yelled in unison “NO GUNS! NO GUNS!” while reading their pithy letters, most likely dictated and coached by their parents via the Ministry of Propaganda.  Contrived, through-and-through.  Perhaps by self-appointed ‘knowledge experts’ in knickers.
  • And now, from this ‘self-appointed knowledge leader’, there’s never been a despot who hasn’t surrounded himself by lots of kiddies in a public forum.

Prezzes Karzai & Obama White House presser and Karzai at Georgetown University

I watched both the joint news conference and Karzai’s address on U.S.-Afghanistan relations and this is my 2 cents:  I was awe-striken by the difference in Karzai’s speech patterns between the 2 events.  While at the podium with Obama at the White House, decked out in his home country regalia, Karzai spoke hesitantly, displaying micro-stutters at beginning of each utterance, giving the impression his English left much to be desired having all the makings of a goat herder , hesitatant, ah ah ah-ing, etc., compared to his speech at Georgetown University.  Hat’s off!  Karzai seemed like a new man. A man whose speech was unhesitant, sure-footed, and very much like a seasoned American.  What’s Up With That????!!!

(I know his family lives in Baltimore…duh!)

Welcome, visitors!

To all recent visitors to my site, WELCOME! Welcome to PopUpCommontater’s lair, where the truth is lain bare, sometimes on a dare, and where falsies are rare. *tricksy titters* Some of you are legit. Others, well, you’ll soon have a fit. My eyes are on you, too. -oo- I’m no Lame Cherry, as Cherry is not lame. Me, on the other hand, am a fool; a toothless crybaby who set up shoppe to ed-u-cate the educable – not to taunt those who possess brains the size of a planet to my marble, but just for crikey roos, if your brain’s the size of a planet, why the hay would you settle for earth when the universe is your milieu! a space limitless enough for your limitless brilliance? Why rule this puny planet when you can go conquer your own ball-and-chain mega-orb, Babylon 5, or 6-ish? Why, oh, why expend your mega-intelligence here, in Blandland. Shoot for the stars! populate Mars! Mensa new frontiers! Abandon us, here!

We. are. a. figment. of. your. imagination. We are not worthy of your presence. Surely you have better things to do than rule us unruly thankless anencephalic nonquislings, no? Why can’t we all just get along???

Yes, why? I think we can’t get along because you don’t want a world without war. Or, without power…money…or sex.

Good luck with that.

So to my visitors from France, Belgium, Macedonia, Sweden et al., if you’re drawn to truth, then I receive you with open arms! if you’re here to monitor me, be warned I’m monitoring you. If you come in peace for knowledge then I mean you no harm and you shall find some thing to take away from here to enlarge your own world of ideas.

If you’re here to administer mischief upon me, well then, PuC you!

Prez-O to penalize individuals if state doesn’t comply with Obamacare………I’m SHOCKED!!! (**,)

“Residents of states that refuse to set up health insurance exchanges under Obamacare are set to be hit with higher premiums under new rules announced by the Health and Human Services Department.”

Where I come from, that’s called B.R.I.B.E.R.Y.  COERCION, if you will.  Such a noble man.  Gee, I never imagined the old baseball bat to the knees persuasion by a seated prez.  My, oh, my, how things have changed, yes?

1. State residents of Obamacare non-compliant states will enjoy perhaps a 3.5% higher premium if the state doesn’t pay The State “protection” money like street-front store owners who have to divvy-up protection money to thugs who “own the streets” or they come by and break your windows, loot, and beat up the owner and its clientele.  Tell me that’s not classy iffen the prez do dat.  Only this time round it’ll be your white-collared neighbors doing the shake down a la Jackson.  Pretty cool, huh?  Please note I wrote “white collared” (not white colored) as even blacks can be white-collar thieves-of-the-State.  Even I know liberals will seize the day on that one! *tricksy titters*

One has to be brain-dead not to see that prez-O is reneging to some point on most of his promises.  Even the Pell grants, you stupidly uninformed students!

Senate about to vote on International Treaty

The Senate is going into Executive Session to, what I assume, hash out this Treaty (Document 112-7) Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities; a treaty that 36 Republicans signed a letter opposing international treaties during lame-duck session.  There are Republicans that believe the Treaty could be a threat to U.S. sovereignty.

 

Questions that arise for me are:

1. what else is in this Treaty that’s not being talked about in open session; does Treaty have a hidden agenda?
2. why would this Treaty take precedence over the other more urgent matters on the Congressional plate?
3. a first-bourne test for international law or “international liberal order” progression spoken about on other C-SPAN programs?
